Operating Tips for Big-Bore Continentals

AVweb editor and powerplant management authority Mike Busch walks you through each phase of a typical mission preflight, start, taxi, runup, takeoff, climb, cruise, descent, landing and shutdown and explains how to operate your big-bore Continental engine for maximum longevity and safety. If you fly a Bonanza, Baron, Centurion, Twin Cessna, or anything else powered by a big Continental, you'll want to read this. (Lycoming operators will find a lot of useful guidance here, too.)
